i've walked for miles in your eastern town
i can't stand it here, so don't shout me down
i thought i might find you, might try to explain
that we've been the victims and we cannot be to blame

we won't get any money from the government
they won't gives us what we're due so now our cover is spent
they won't back down until we sell the farm
and come back with needle-marks on our arms

well, i know that you can dance
but what have you got to say?
i can see that you can dance

i know that the world we've built together is broken
maybe i've taken you for granted, left to much unspoken
there's a red headed Elvis, he's been awake for days
and he makes me feel so jealous, he's believes every note he plays
and he wants for nothing but fortune and fame
he's the king tut for this pyramid game
and in his eyes i see apologies that make me think of you

well, i know that you can dance
but what have you got to say?
i can see that you can dance

what if we're more dangerous than all the boys you've known?
what if i'm the baddest seed that you have ever sown?
tell your mother and your brother that tonight we are in love

well, i know that you can dance
but what have you got to say?

where are your songs?
